  17. Dear Christine,
    Please accept my deepest condolences on the loss of your beloved David. I always looked up front at 4:300 Mass on Saturdays and saw you and David sitting there. It was comforting to see you guys there every time. I know you both were very faithful to daily Mass as well.
    I remember when I was a lector you and David were so attentive to the proclamation of the word.
    I know you will miss him tremendously as I have missed my loving spouse Johnna. I take comfort in the memories we shared during our 50 years of marriage and perhaps you can too.
    Grieve all you want and as long as you want, it is a process that is on going.
    I still miss Johnna a lot.
    Take care and may God Bless and keep you in His Loving arms to comfort you during this time.
